I rescued (or am attempting to) this Dracaena from a neighbor and it’s still not doing well. I repotted and have had him in the window (moved to the other side of my office for a better picture) for some sun… any ideas? Is it in shock from the move and repotting?

Hi friends! Update on our sago palm since my last post… the fronds are drooping pretty low now. The soil was dry so I watered today (last watering was 1/8). Is this a temperature/humidity issue? I know these are also prone to nitrogen deficiencies but I’m hesitant to fertilize outside of growing season.

Pic taken on October 6th is in comments for comparison.

My aloe has been enjoying the sun and arching towards it. Every time she bends too much on one side, I rotate her so she bends the other side and stays straight. I don’t know if this is good long term. Will her “neck” snap at some point with the weight? What would you do?

I received this plant and it was pretty much completely rotted. I snipped off the one healthy looking piece with only two leaves and placed it in water to establish roots. It is doing great and I placed it back into soil but I am no expert lol. Is this going to grow any additional vines or is this a lost cause?
